I love contests and had the idea for a comment contest for a while. Basically every at 11:55PM CST a automated job would randomly pick a commenter as the winner for that day. The daily winners will win a free ShoeMoney T-shirt and we will ship it anywhere in the world that we can legally. Winners will all be notified by email and also posted on the contest page. You must reply to the email within 48 hours. Most of the emails are getting flagged as spam or bulk email due to the contest wording so make sure you white list shoemoney.com if you plan to participate.
Then at the end of the month we would have a drawing for a grand prize which the system would automatically choose from all the daily winners.
I somewhat soft launched the comment contest system last week and as you can see some days have more then 1 winner.
A couple of companies noticed also and asked about sponsoring the grand prize. I tried to fend them off for now saying it was in beta and I was not sure what we were going to do for prizes.
Then Neil Patel made me a offer I could not refuse. He said he would give the winner a Macbook AIR for the months of July and August. So on September 1st we will draw from all the daily winners and the winner will receive a Macbook AIR courtesy of ACS Consulting.
Again open to anyone anywhere in the world as long as its legal for us to do so.
Hopefully if it works out we will continue the contest after september 1st 😉

oh the sexy apple. drool drool
Very inovative Jerremy! Good Luck on the Contest.
Btw, I see three Mac Books AIR in that picture, are you keeping one for yourself 😉
Good luck to everyone! (:
Great! I love it. I would love to win a Shoemoney Tshirt or a Macbook Air or Both!
Very nice! You have small numbers for Shoemoney Tshirt ?
Nice competition – you know I should blatently win the macbook air – because then I would sell it..lol jokes!
Shoemoney is King of Contests too!
Thanks for the chance.
Great Contest and the grand prize is even sponsored by an amazing company! Thanks a lot Mr. Shoemaker, no doubt, I’m participating.
Go ahead and deliver the Macbook Air to me in Korea :).
Thanks in advance.
Am already on a spree 😀 Luckily won 3 t-shirts already 🙂 Thanks.. Would try to be active whole of the contest.
I think the Shoemoney tshirt is more valuable than the macbook air (but MBA is still freaking sweet)! 😛
Just when I read that I need a Mac with an Intel processor to use the SDK for the iPhone, you announce this. I guess I need to start spending more time on your site. 😉
Great contest to have! You always have great original ideas!
Winning prizes(whatever it might be) is always fascinating 😀 And am lucky in this case.
Anywhere legal? Is that just Canada and the US? A lot of competitions are restricted to just those countries (I’m not sure why though…).
A Mac Book Air…. men you take this thing seriously…i will watching the site…..
Great contest, and greater picture….it looks like you standing over an Apple hamster cage after a long weekend. “Look dad..they had BABIES!!!’
I think this is a pretty cool way to generate more traffic to your blog and reward users who interact with you. Great Idea!
That’s what I call a “call to action.” Comments should go way up. Most other gurus would make you join their list. Nice change of pace doing it this way…less junk mail.
No, i won already and Jeremy assured that they are going to be shipped internationally 🙂
I hope anywhere except Iran, Iraq, N. Korea, and such is ok…
By the way: won’t this contest lead to excessive spam? 😉
Nice contest Jeremy. I am also joining in..
Cool contest, saw this post via twitter, I’m going for the tshirt, but a MacBook Air would be nice too! 🙂
That’s a really good point starting commenting. I would never comment if there wasn’t this contest. Sounds like an opportunity to me! Great!
Awesome! I have horrible luck but maybe I can win one day!
This is cool. Will be commenting more often. 🙂
Great price, I’d love me some macbook air 🙂
I would like to win your Tshirt. My birthday soon, so your Tshirt could be a great surprize for me!
Do you have a bigger chance of winning if you make more comments?
Wow cool – I want one too. I wonder if there’s a shipping charge 😉
wooow m i a lucky one 🙂 tell me i m
I would love to win both!
I would hoist the shirt as a flag in the Himalaya on our roadtrip from Germany to Australia! 🙂
Hmm… would love to have that toy… for free
I hope that I have chance to win 🙂
wow chetan, you must be damn lucky. 3 wins in 4 days. Btw, why are there 3 winners on the 10th?
Great contest! T-shirt would be awsome! So would a mac book air to go along with the new iPhone 3g! Thanks for the contest Shoe.
Very nice. I wonder how many comments a person would need to leave to gain a statistical advantage…
Awesome 🙂 I’d love a mac book air.
IÂ´d love a macbook air and would also hoist your shirt as a flag in the himalaya on my roadtrip
I am dying for a Mac Air…Don’t have enough money though 🙁 I hope i win it here. 🙂
shoe hows life – hope everything is great with your new born and too bad we could not chill more while at TAC – but it was great while I was there
LOL, I’d actually be happy with a ShoeMoney shirt as I already have one but its 2 sizes too large!
Sounds like a really good idea. Jeremy always comes up with something more original 🙂
OK, let’s try.
(i have already the Black T-Shirt… but i’d like to receive the white one! (and the Mac Book Air, of course 😀 )
Hope i Win…I am Dying for the Mac Air…don’t have enough money though 🙁 here is a great chance. 🙂
Sweet. Count me in.
Count me in. 🙂 Im Dying for a Mac Air, though dont have enough money. Hope i Win.:)
Very cool, I always wanted a AIR, but can’t justify buying one…winning one however that is a different story.
And great idea on the contest every day. That is one awesome way to get people talking on your site
Awesome contest Jeremy! I’m sure you will see a lot more people commenting daily on the site!
Awesome idea. The fact that it is entirely automated definitely helps you maintain it over the long run…
Very cool Shoe. I doubt this’ll add much spam, seeing as how the top commentators typically do that plenty enough. 😉
Awesome contest Jeremy!
love you 😛 I always wanted a macbook air
Awesome! Good to see that you always find someone willing to put up the cool stuff….MAC Book Air…I would LOVE to have one…but a t-shirt would be a good start, too 😉
So does the amount of comments you leave UP the chances of winning?
Your brain must never stop trying to come up with new ideas. This idea will obviously get a lot of people interested. Thanks for offering a contest where a lot of people can at least win something, like a cool t-shirt! I love free t-shirts.
Wow Shoemoney, talk about a way to increase comment activity on your site. You will now have people coming back day after day and making a daily comment just so they can win a shirt and/or a bigger prize. Is there any criteria about the quality of the post? Also, can a person win more than once and thus have multiple entries into the bigger drawing?
m i the luck one……….nice idea:)
Yep this idea is really unique and the script is also his own, selecting one winner daily automatically. And Susan Baron, from Shoemoney Media Group is good at replying to winner’s emails 🙂
I had been watching ur blog since a month now and am really impressed with the design and ur presentation.
By the by congrats for ur baby .
Only thing that bothers me is since I am from india I cannot take part in any offers or competitions which u sponser.
well better luck me next time.
I noticed you mention this on Twitter so obviously we’re getting cross-fertilisation going on…
Looking great, t shirt and air mack would be nice prize!
Believe it or not, this is my first time entering some type of contest online. Hope to win.
Awesome contest idea, I love it!
Just one question, i saw my name on daily prize winners for 09.july.2008 but i never got any email, i just checked my inbox (nothing in spam two). Is this going today (emails) or i miss chance to get tshirt because “48 hours gone”? Thx!
Wow again. so tempting. wish wish wish. Hope i will be lucky this time. 🙂
That’s awesome man, great to see Neil/ACS is sponsoring the comment contest. That Cheta fellow isn’t going to need to do laundry ever again at this rate. 🙂
Now that is a great prize and so easy to enter.
hahaha you would know, having won three shirts so far! 🙂 in all seriouness, she’s very responsive and courteous
It’s a great contest idea with a grat price!
This is some great news for all of us 😉 I like the idea of a contest!
Oh, I remember reading a news article recently about how a specific state’s department was suing a contest (offline) because “games of chance” (where winning depends on chance and no amount of skill) are considered gambling and subject to restrictions in certain areas. That’s why so many contests say “Void where prohibited” as a blanket disclaimer. You might want to put that somewhere.
Awesome Idea and great easy contest, I love it! And I hope that I can win something!
Chetan, You’ll be able to open a Shoemoney T-shirt store soon 😛 JK!
Yep! Anyways congrats to you too to win a t-shirt in the contest 🙂
I love mac air!!!
I think you missed it, as i checked that and also shoemoney pinged me on twitter and asked to check the bulk folder, and i found it in the spam box.
I have a question and sorry if it out of the topic. Why I don’t have my picture in the comment avatar space even I have mybloglog profile open and cookies enabled?
And how the system will pick me if my comments are anynomious, Nobody can know that Zak Show is commenting as I don’t have something referring to it in my comment space.
Im not asking for something but Im confused about this from long time ago and I think it’s the right time to make it clear for me 🙂
great contest shoe… also great to see other sponsors getting involved. hope i win something… 🙂
Great contest idea and a great prize being offered! This should have some great positive implications for your site – encouraging people to visit the site, instead of just reading the RSS feed, encouraging more active commenting, and making the blog a more interactive environment. The downside as I see it, is that the “signal to noise” ratio is going to get thrown out of whack. You already get a lot of lame comments from people looking to score a “top commentators” spot, and now that will be heightened. Hopefully I’m wrong on this and people try to genuinely add to the conversation, but I’m doubtful.
Sweet contest. Some of the legalities come in how each state, country, whatever interprets a lottery.
yep, it will be shipped worlwide as J told me in the other post. and it’s also mentioned in the post.
And people wonder why you are such a popular blogger.
I never win anything like this, but how cool would it be to win a Macbook AIR to break the streak? Thanks Jeremy and thanks ACS Consulting!
It’s not a crime or spam to comment in a blog to take the top commentators spot! Am I wrong?
Really?? Come on man. When you comment, your name is listed. Don’t you see where it says “Zak Show Says” – that’s identifying you as the commenter. As for the avatar – you have to use gravatar.com
Jeremy is a great blogger because he really know how to make money online and that’s why people love to read his blog to find new tips, tricks and news that can help them out with their online business 🙂
So you finally decided to go with the Macbook AIR! Pretty good choice Shoe! Great idea for a contest! 🙂
I didn’t say it’s a crime. It just doesn’t add value to the conversation when people post stupid one line comments like, “great post shoe.” Really, what’s the point in posting that? On a post like this, I suppose it’s fine, because Jeremy is offering up a contest idea. For people to say they like the idea makes sense. Most of the time, however, it’s really annoying.
Haha. Yeah. It is so very tempting Charles!
Shoe thats a fantastic idea for a contest and a cool prize as well.
One problem though I would like you to know, when one click on Comment on this post to win a shirt in your rss feed, person gets taken to the homepage of your blog. I am not sure if it intentional but it is somewhat cumbersome to then find the post to comment on.
WOW! This sounds really good. I am not a lucky man all in my life but who knows maybe today my luck will be change its way dramatically:)
That is a great idea. I wonder if you will share the system you are using to draw the daily winner, it would be cool to add to my wp!
Indeed. You need to register at Gravatar.com and upload a picture / avatar that would be shown here and on a lot of other blogs too that use the gravatar plugin. 🙂
I don’t see that and I don’t see even others commentators name. All what I can see is the date, the time and the comment. For every comment expect these commentators that use gravatar. Anyway thanks man for the gravatar info, I’ll test to see how it will work.
Have a nice day.
Well, I guess we all have a reason to comment now, don’t we? Awesome idea and great fun of course.
Well, I think Im in the top commentators list and you can check all my comments, you’ll find that Im trying to add a value and post something useful. I try to the max to avoid these 5 words comments. Anyway I got your point 🙂 Thanks for making things clear.
Great competition! 🙂
That macbook air would rock Hope I win! Congrats on the new baby!
I would love to win a prize.
Sounds like a good time to start commenting.. Something I’ve never done on any blog.
Woo maybe I’ll win!
Awesome idea! Even i would only win the t shirt it’s worth it to participate!
Hmm, wonder how many comments you are going to receive until the end of August for people wanting just to win the Macbook Air and not necessarily commenting because they have an opinion.
Are you going to be coming back to the TAC set before the show ends?
Free is always a good price
What a great way to incentivize genuine comments for articles!
A very cool contest. I want in.
We’ve been doing contests on our site lately and have fun running them. Good luck with this idea.
Shoemoney for President! 😉
Aww, i missed the soft launch. oh well, still a good idea!
Sounds awesome, I’ve been considering getting a macbook air.
I can always use a new t-shirt and a laptop would be heaven!
Wow! Very nice prizes and a neat idea.
Great competition… However, now there are more useless comments. 🙁
This contest is truly a breath of fresh *air*. =)
That’s a great prize for one lucky punter!
Still, its not the only reason for which i comment here.. I used to comment here before the contest too as i just love interacting with other Shoemoney readers here..
I would definitely wear a shoemoney shirt if i won it
Awesome contest Shoe!
This is cool, but are you making sure to fend off the commenters that post more than once? Will the system be filtering out duplicate commenters?
Winning the MacBook Air would be a great excuse for finally getting rid of the last Windows machine in the house…
This is just effin publicity stunt…. but i like it 🙂
he is the most popular in money-making field…at least, I don’t know any other that outranks shoe
Great news 🙂 Count me in …
This is gonna be a long long chain of “woow, count me in” comments 😀
you’re a lucky guy…be sure to take a picture wearing one of them and share it with us somehow when you will get it.
Won’t this drastically decrease the quality of comments? Or do you think that everyone already comments just to get their URL linked to?
as I understand it, 5 minutes before the midnight the system (a script) picks a winner from all comments from the posts made in that day. Correct me if I’m wrong
@Shreedhar, I believe you can participate in the contest. Shoe said that he will ship the prizes everywhere in the world where it’s possible to do so. This isn’t a contest only for a part of the globe or only for some countries.
Apple > than my POS Dell… here’s to hoping! 🙂 I love this idea btw great for the readers to become more involved!
Wow!! Great ShoeContest. Great way to honor your readers.
Spandex are a privilege.
Great Contest. The best way to honor your readers.
Awesome competition – definitely will get people to join the conversation.
Great Contest Plugin. Will you publish this plug in for wordpress community?
Tis gonna be an interesting month for Shoemoney
Apple should also sponsor this :p because they get more advertising than the current sponsors 🙂
Great competition. Nice sponsor too 😀
Good luck everyone!!
i hate mac people but i’ll take a mac book air for testing 😉
Sounds cool, count me in!
I like free.
Great contest, unbelievable prizes.
speak for yourself! my pc just died and i’m on my girlfriend’s laptop!
I need to win this – so i can sell it to fully fund my startup
Me too, I was at the top commentators list many time before the contest is live. I love commenting in others blog.
Awesome idea. Thanks for the contest.
cool contest, i could use a new computer….
Awesome, good way to keep visitors too.
I never win these sort of things, but here I am, posting.
Awesome !! I hope I win the contest ! 🙂
Cool. I really could use a new laptop for college.
Awesome contest idea
And we get encouraged when these kind of contests are launched.. They just add value to our comments 😉
Yeah baby I am in! Never used a Mac, but would give it a try.
That’s a lot of commenters, wow. Quite a neat idea, with the automated script and everything.
Great contest…hope I’ll win one of these days
What a great idea and great way to increase readership! I could use the MacBook Air, but a shirt is just as good.
I guess you can ship it to Spain! 🙂
Wow, two MacBook Air are a real motivation to be active on your Blog. Good to see that you figured out how to ship internationally 🙂
Yes, for sure my friend 🙂
Nice one… I’m in from NZ!
Great idea; what script are you using, is it your own?
wow that’s awesome! Hope I get to win something.
Thanks for the awesome contest Shoe!
DANG! Timing is suboptimal as I was thinking about getting a MacBook Air to blog the Democratic Convention (I am a delegate from Oregon). But I can also take my elderly 12″ aluminum PowerBook – not as light, but fairly small. I’m in for the contest, what the hell.
MacBook Air you say. I say frickin awesome. I have a question though, does multiple comments get you multiple entires for that day? And can you win more then one day?
This is a great contest Shoemoney. I have been entering hundreds of contests on blogs over the past couple of months and sadly have not won a thing. So perhaps the universe will shine it’s abundance light on me down here at the Southern tip of Africa and send me a Macbook Air. I’m also pretty sure that the automated winner picker script will recognise the benefit of having me walking down a Johannesburg street wearing a Shoemoney t-shirt too. Here’s to the law of attraction…
That is an awesome idea for contest. Really nice thinking Shoemoney 🙂
Wow – nice idea Jeremy! I’d love to win the Macbook AIR and the shirts aren’t too bad either 😛 (just kidding). I will be commenting more often 🙂
Nice idea, I hope I win!
Yeah, I wasn’t calling you out on this. I’ve got no problem if people actively comment on a blog and add to the conversation. In fact, I think that’s wonderful. In addition to the posts here, I enjoy reading the reaction people have to them, and the reactions people have to each others’ comments as well. I just don’t like when people comment EXCLUSIVELY because they have something to gain from it.
I view blog commenting as a way to draw traffic to your site, but also as a way to affirm and thank the author of the post… and I believe the best way to thank them isn’t to say “thank you” explicitly, but rather to further the conversation that they have begun. Anyway, that’s my take on the valued comment vs comment spam situation.
That’s odd – what browser are you using? I see “Zak Show Says:” on all of your comments, even though you don’t have an avatar displaying. Weird.
If you’re going to kill dupes before picking a random commenter, it might not be a bad idea to post it to cut back on spam.
Then again, looking at the comments so far, I’m guessing there are already people posting one-liners under multiple email accounts in case you do kill dupes first.
Still cool of you no matter how it works out!
Damn, sweet deal you have here shoe… ive been wanting a mac for the longest time.
They are so sexy.
Cool contest! At least you’ve made it pretty simple to win. Leave a comment and you’re entered. I’ve seen some contests lately, with some many rules and stipulations; Einstein couldn’t figure out how to win them.
Sweet, I could use a new Mac.
Obviously, I am one of your rss subscriber and your comment contest is pretty neat. MBA whoohoo-really cool. Anyway, I’d like one of your Tee. I already have a macbook air but won’t say NO with another one LOLS.
I really want one!
why doesn’t my name show up?
congratulations to me, for winning the mac book air 😉
..and this is how you captivate an audience. I would love to find out the ROI on something like this. I’m guessing that this will bring back a lot of people who posted in the past, and will turn a lot of “lurkers” into posters, but how would all of this translate into profit? Somehow I have no doubt it will. 😀
Contest are awesome….btw congrats on the baby
I’ve been an avid reader of your work and am always inspired with the knowledge that you share. Awesome on the news of your baby!
cool! what a great idea.
my prediction? more comments and more visits to leave said comments. nice shoe 🙂
Great contest ! Good luck to all
I think this is a great idea for a contest!
there are many people who only reads the feeds and not coming to the website…some of them will actually visit the website from now on because of the contest. Also, there are people who only visit the blog a couple of times per week to see what’s new…now, they might visit it daily
Wow, I thought the T-Shirt was a great gesture considering the cost involved, but now the possibility of winning a MAC. Kool!
One thing though – Does the Mac come with Instructions? haha
I’ve been thinking about doing just this for quite awhile now! I’m looking forward to how it turns out for you, Shoe. Should be a huge increase in quantity of comments… but it will be important to keep the quality up to par with what you need. Otherwise, readers will become more and more annoyed with frequent “me too” commentary. Time will tell!
That’s awesome. Thanks Shoe!
A good contest is easy when you have awesome prizes to offer! Love it…
This is good Jeremy… But I just wonder, as the number of your comments skyrocket so as the junk comments and those who do not add value… what do you think?
What? A Macbook AIR? Can’t believe this. Of course I’m very very interested into this. Going to post comment regularly then 😉
Sign me up Shoe!!! What ever I can do to help, let me know. Would love to add to this and help. Just let me know
Awesome way to get readers to stay involved. I have herd great things about you,but today was my first visit. Just added you to my Google reader
Great idea! I love my MacBook Pro, but you can never have enough computers!
Wow this sounds like a great contest… very cool of a large company to sponsor the giveaway!
indeed i think better spam prevention methods would be needed now! but sounds like a brilliant contest and link bait:p
your blogs getting a lot more replies already! good idea. did you make the plugin yourself? wouldn’t mind doing this on my blog.
As if we need yet another reason 🙂
Interesting way to draw large audiences and comments.
My eyes might be deceiving me, but I think I see the name Terry Tay on the box 😉
Sounds like a great contest that is sure to boost commenting on your blog Jeremy!
One Macbook Air please! Thank you!
OK, cool… so all you have to do is comment? Sounds good – I’m in 🙂
I’m afraid of Mac, I know, beat down by windows. So I figure, if I enter I’ll probably win just so I have to change my entire life.
I’m more interested in the stats that come of this contest than the prizes…although a shirt would be cool.
Hope You Get The Guniess World Record For Most Comments In One Post! Count Me In
I am IN! WOOOO Macbook AIR
This would be nice. But it will never happen with my Luck!
Very cool idea, a Macbook Air would be amazing!!
Extremely Generous! I hope I win!
I hate to add junk comments, but I can’t let this one pass. count me up!
I’d love to have a free shoemoney shirt, can put it on display with my Azoogleads shirt :-p
Thanks for providing a contest that doesn’t require people to jump through hoops in order to enter. I like nice and simple. 🙂
Rock on – great idea for a contest!!!!
I guess I will be commenting more often now.
What a great prize. Could really use it!!
Another chance for me to finally get a macbook air. Thanks to the sponsor and shoemoney. Keep up the good work guys.
thanks for your article.it nice.
pick me pick me im cool pick me
Big bucks no wammie, big bucks no wammie, STOP!
Can I get a PINK Macbook AIR? Oh, never mind, any color will do! LOL
First time commenting, but I’ve been reading all along! I appreciate all of your posts.
Nice competition Shoe. Would love to get my hands on that Macbook air, while a t-shirt would be great also.
Having about 200 comments on a post, how are you going to find the winner, Shoe? Want to appoint me for the job? I’ll help you to find the perfect winner for Macbook Air (Hopefully that is me).
Haha. It’s awesome how when the free stuff comes out, everyone starts to comment. Maybe I should give something away on my blog…
You realize you are going to get a massive amount of b.s comments for a few months I gather.
e.g I want a cookie… I mean Macbook Air.
Perfect I need new clothes and a laptop 🙂
This a brilliant, and what a novel idea for getting for getting more readers and subscribers, I may even borrow this. As Lightening says simple is good as i learned a while back
Please include me! Thanks!
Winning another MacBook Air would be too cool, I’m in!
Count me in Shoe 🙂
Great Contest…would love to get a MacBook Air!
This a brilliant, and what a novel idea for getting for getting more readers and subscribers, I may even borrow this. As Lightening says simple is good as I learned a while back. Complictated confuses people. She know she didn’t enter, clever girl
Pick me…… it would go nice with my new iPhone!
Wow… this is the easiest contents I have ever join.. Good luck for you, and of course me… (if I win…)
One MacBook Air Please…
good look for all but i want that Macbook 🙂
Just curious, what you’re using to automate the selection process.
Awesome contest. It’d be nice if I won a Macbook :3 I’m in!
Count me in Shoe!
Been lurking for a while, but thought that this was a pretty good time to de-lurk. That’s a very generous offer from ACS Consulting. The boys and I would be rapt to be so lucky!
Oh, I love that black shoeshirt, but a Macbook Air in time to take to BlogWorld would be heaven!
this is just a great idea,, I hope I win …
Awesome prize. Better go buy an Australian charger because that lappy is coming to me 🙂
Any more info on posting rules, selection process etc?
Mac book air.
I haven’t even touched it yet.
I hope to win.
Jeremy – don’t forget the nice item we sent you for T-shirt Friday this winter 🙂 Fingers crossed for the MB Air!
Awesome, about time you had a contest. I’m in!
Can’t say no to free clothes and a possible chance to win an awesome laptop.
Cool stuff shoemoney
I love the chance to win, but I keep reading Shoemoney even if he doesn’t give me things. And since he never has (other than info), I have proven my point.
That’s got to be the worst sentence I’ve ever written.
That was hard work in that contest where you had won a macbook air 🙂 And here it going to be luck which has to play a role 🙂 Lets see Alan!
This is a great opportunity, thanks for pitching in the laptops Neil!
Hopefully users from other countries will win, since you do not ship any shirts to Canada or others….
…shipping overseas will cost more than t-shirt itself :). Anyway, I enjoy reading Shoe’s “ramblings”, so I’ll place my bet.
Nothing beats free.
Filling a blog post to the brim with longtail keywords…always good. Why not say people have to comment 3 times a day in order to be eligible to win.
Thanks! Count me in!
Cool, I hope you can deliver that Macbook to Croatia 😉
this is insane because i cannot imagine the no. comments…
Great contest shoe. Hope I am the lucky one to grab the Air. Good luck to everyone!
Very cool idea for a contest. I think you can judge what this will do to the comments count just by looking at this post:)
I wouldn’t mind winning this macbook air. I just need some luck.
Great contest idea Shoe. Congrats with your new baby 🙂
Thats cool ,Contest and Macbook.
I think I am too late in the day, and missed the cut off. If I do win though, I am going to donate my mac air to Neil. 🙂
By the way Shoe, great idea on the contest. It is such a simple idea, yet totally unique and creative. Well done!
Really cool! I love winning contests ;-).
Cool, i live those contest und hope your contest robot will do the right thing 🙂
Greetings from Germany
I think that the excitement surrounding the competition will be great. Contests on popular projects – is always fun.And victory is not the main…
Good Luck and have fun 😉
some kind of script he written in php…I’m also interested to know if it can be integrated with wordpress
jee this contest will drum up alot of interest…you should post sum traffic stats shoe !
Well Well… My size is an L 😀
Oooo.. I wanna win this!!
What a great comp!!! I hope it gets you lots of new readers 🙂
LMAO, Man the comment rate just tripled!
[…] over at Shoemoney.com he is having a Win A Laptop Competition. Its really easy to enter, just leave a comment somewhere on the Shoemoney website and if you are […]
Well I guess if you are going to give a way a laptop then it might as well be the Macbook AIr. What a competition. Lets hope I win
I’m so gonna win this.
NIce idea … XXL – How many people still use PCÂ´s here?
Good luck, folks! May the best man win! 😉
very interesting indeed. i now cross my fingers…hard
Is there basis for worrying that giving away such lucrative prizes will lower the quality of the comments when there are some who deliberately post a seemingly professional/sensitive/thought provoking/heartfelt comment just to get their hands on one of the really hot prizes, whereas they usually wouldnt give much thought to it?
This is the coolest contest I have seen all summer. Every one is giving iphones but a Macbook Air… definitively the best contest.
great contest Shoemoney! And the grand prize is sooo tempting 🙂 I would love to get the t-shirt as well 🙂
Very inovative Jerremy! Good Luck on the Contest.
What a great idea. Good luck and I’d love this 🙂
MMA is garbage… start watching boxing
Wow, I was just playing with a Macbook Air in Best Buy for the first time yesterday. Sounds like it must be fate! 😉
Wow I don’t think I have had to scroll so much before just to comment. But I just remembered there is a link at the top to go directly to the Add Comment section.
Somehow my comment’s not showing up…
i love prizes
I’m all in!!!!!!!!! Nice contest Shoe. 😉
basically every _____ at 11:55PM CST a automated job. I’m assuming that was supposed to be day? Or is it Tuesday? Or is it Tuesday in the year 2040?
Shoemoney your awesome! Hope the little one is doing good!
waks! mc air for me 3x . good luck for the contest ….
I’d rather have the shirt 😉
…this will confirm whether I have a charmed life or not.
count me in..
I have no clothes 🙁 😀
Whew, what a beauty! I’d like a shot at it.
are you worried that giving away such nice prizes will lower the quality of the comments when there are some who deliberately post a seemingly professional/sensitive/thought provoking/heartfelt comment just to get their hands on one of the really hot prizes
Thanks for the effort! Even I know that I won’t win the MacBook Air.
lol, damn straight, back off, its mine!
hmmm pretty interesting, always wanted to try a mac.
Shoe, your precious baby is a true blessing and thanks be to God that she is doing much better. Keep your head up and love your family everyday for love is the glue that holds a life worth living together.
I really enjoy it when the Haves throw a bone to the Have-Nots. 200 comments a day for a little less than 2 months? Should be very interesting.
Apple is growing market share every which way but loose. In the Top Affiliate Content, my money’s on shoe’s team.
Dang, 300+ comments and your page is broke (on my screen at least). I had to disable css to see the comment form. Count me in though……!
No kidding. That’s a serious prize! This is definitely one way to get a huge comment count.
Sign me up! I need a replacement for this crapbox Dell I’m currently using.
Uh, cool… I’m in. Been reading the blog for a while, only commenting occasionally. Will undoubtedly pick up the pace now.
Nice contest you are running shoemoney!
Good Luck to everyone, and myself :p
Same here, im in! 🙂
“No purchase necessary?” – I’m in!
WTF! 320 comments! Im wondering why this post is not jumped to the most commented list in the top?
Do you read all the comments, specially comments on the post like this (contest) or let them in however.
Will anyone scroll down to the bottom of the page to read this comment? I guess I am 321 on the list!! 😉
#322 Woot! Last wins right? 😉
I need a replacement for my old Mac powerbook!
PS…I do miss the old comment section that linked from the commentor to their page. I found some great blogs that way…
Neil Patel ROCKS………
This is my first comment on shoemoney.com and i really need a personal laptop
I usually do as well. But at least it’s easy to enter lol
Mi first big prize contest ever!!!
Oh I really want a macbook air! last year my macbook was broken on purpose… by my dad as a punishment … for buying an iphone… even though i got permission from my mom! and it was out of my own saved money! it was pretty depressing …. now there is no mac in the house… because both parents use windows…. its been such a terrible long year without one… and theyre like… we ca make an agreement… and its the most retarded thing! its called the “happy agreement” and they expect me to pay 1/3 of it… out of my allowance and I cant even get a job yet! they can be stupid like this sometimes! Im drooling in my mind looking at all of the macbook airs in that pic.!
anyways… please choose me!
That is awesome! wouldn’t mind owning one 😛
Sign me up! SWMBO (she who must be obeyed) has been wanting my Macbook and this will definitely get me some points!
Shoemoney…you sure do know how to cause a stir with a quick write up. I call it “the money post”!
What an awesome giveaway your having…I could really use the grand prize but would also like to have one of your T-shirts…that would be pretty cool too. Actually, if you gave me anything, it’d be a good win 🙂
I’m in! w00t!
Oh yeah, I’m in!
This is the only blog i am reading. i hope i will earn at leas a t-shirt because i am a big fan of shoemoney

Nice contest you got there. The page doesn’t even (completely) load for me.
Good luck all.
So my Firefox (3.0) blanks out after you scroll through 80% of the comments. And my Explorer (7.0.5730.11) doesn’t seem to show the names of anyone commenting. These are some interesting side effects of having too many comments. It also appears that a lot of people dropped out of the race after day one.
Nice contest. Id love a shot at it!
I’d even make out with a stranger for a mac book air! ; P
Nice contest, I would do some pretty extreme stuff for a Mac book Air and here all i have to do is leave a post. Ha
sweeeeet! gimme a free shirt!
Well I have some clothes on right now. Not that many as I need more Air!:)
What a fantastic contest! Hope I win something 🙂
Great! Now look at all the new comment whores!
Count me in for the Mac Air too! Thanks!
that’s crazy! gimmeeeehhh!
I think it’s a shame that this competition is inspiring so many unintelligible comments. The spirit of the competition – I thought, was to initiate some real discussion. Having said that – I am also a culprit. 😉
MacBook Air?? Whoa! Now that’s a nice giveaway. I’d love to win one. My 12″ Powerbook is on its last legs….
oh!!!!that was great.. I wish i can have one of those prices that is giivng away..i want to have a laptop coz I haven’t got one…

I wanna win this fabulous mac book air. I love it.
You know, I fell in love with Macbook Air at the first sight. I really want to have but it’s not easy. Would you like to give one to me???. Terima Kasih
i am a def. nominee for a free mac book air because i have never had anything of my own and i needed to share it with people but with it i will be more independent and it would just really help me.
i love the mac book air it is awesome i need it
I really need a macbook air! My family loves to go on vacations, but we can never check our emails because of not staying places where there are computers available. Our computers at home are very slow, but we cannot afford anything right now because well we are in a tight squeeze on cash, also a shirt would be great too because it shows we are a part of this cool contest! -Boshque Family. 🙂
The mac book air will be awesome to have around so i can study on it and play around ILOVE MAC BOOK AIR
The Macbook Air is one of the most advanced compact laptop computers of our time. One of the Coolest features is its ability to wirelessly connect to another Mac or PC and utilize its optical drive!
me my kids 1 teen and two bang babies love computers, we don’t have one, we use one at a lifeskill center i volunteer at, my goal to get notebook, as we are always on the go and when we get home it’s down time, i need something that fits in my bag and we can zip away…lol the macair book looks like the ticket, how much does it cost?
HI , this is Hein. I would like to have a Mac books. It’s very impressive. All of my friend got a laptop, I’m the only one guy who doesn’t have laptop. Deliver the Macbook Air to me in Australia.
Think of something quirky to get attention or tell the the honest, blatant, truth.
Hmm sadly I prefer the latter.
I commence my studies next year and my sole purpose is to teach in Africa as my backgroud incorporates numerous cultures and I have only so much as heard of the hardships of third world countries.
Anyway, I would love to receive a Macbook! As opposed to the internet cafe in town with all the sleazy, sleazy tourists. *shifty eyes*
i realllllllly want a macbook air. please randomly choose me!!! (:
i really need this. pretty please. ((((((:
I don’t even know what a macbook is but it looks sexy 😉 lol.

This is an awesome giveaway. As a college student i know how expensive laptops can get. The screen on mine stopped working suddenly and now it’s hooked up to an olad CRT monitor. Oh well it was cheap $10 fix. This would be an awesome thing to win though!
Very cool giveaway!
Good luck everyone!
I am really enjoying my new shiny Apple that I won in this contest, It is makes work a pleasure.

I would love to own a macbook!
Great idea, very generous.
Good Luck to everyone.
I think this would make a wonderful gift for my husband when he arrives from deployment, and see’s a brand new Apple sitting right next to his night stand. OMG how I would love to see the look on his face. CLASSIC!
I really need a laptop. I would buy one but i cant afford it. If i dont get one i will get in trouble for not having one for school. PLEASE CHOOSE ME!!!!!!
I love this. I wish I could afford a macbook. Pity I can’t get a job cos I have to put as much time as I can into my school work.
I think this is a pretty good idea and i would love to win a lapto because i will need one for school work.
– what a great competition, – I’ve been struggling trying to revive/rebuild an old flat-lining mac desktop & a drive, – looks like I only managed to save the drive though. Now I’m dreaming, – of a white macbook – “just like the ones I used to know…”
i’ll be leaving this september to pursue my college scholarhsip in china. i am really looking forward to win such portable and convenient laptop like the macbook air, that can make my once in a lifetine educational experience in china everything a student would wish!…
great site, it gives opportunities to those hopefuls like me…
i would love to have that macbook your holding on the pic for my college study… i believe that a macbook air can effectively accommodate my school stuffs… so that i will not anymore rent a computer in a cafe just to accomplish my homeworks and projects… such a useful tool.
I haven’t a prayer to win with so many competitors. Thanks for the oppertunity!
if i cud win a macbook air. i wud be so happy.

Æ¸ÌµÌ¡ÓœÌµÌ„Ì¨Æ· I would love to win this ‘Macbook AIR’ not for myself but for my husband, Heâ€™ll be back from deployment in about 3 weeks just in time for his birthday (Aug 26) and what better gift to give him than the sexiest beast known to man… an ‘Apple Macbook AIR’. do you know how long heâ€™s been craving for it? unfortunately the Army doesnâ€™t pay enough for us to splurge on one. So Iâ€™ll be impatiently waiting for your reply in hopes you choose us.

apples are so sexyyy.

I am a momma trying to help my Son make the music that God sent him to make. I love to here that boy play. A Macbook Air would make that happen. He would created those beats that make cars bump, thump and sometimes Jump.
No way… getting a laptop, especially a MacBook would be amazing. I’ve always wanted one but they’re too expensive!
I am 16 years old I lost my father at 13 I hve a big sister who has moved out… I miss her a ton! Anyway I am an aspiring photographer you can go to my website and check out some of my shots. the main problem is that I don’t have the equitment I need to learn and get better a mac would help me SO much I would have so many new opertunities to edit and improve my pictures.
This is a really great contest, and perhaps I am just saying this because I am a broke college student, but it is really appreciated!

Good luck everyone. What a great concept.
I’m graduating highschool this year.
I will be starting college a month after graduation day.
I’m going into Graphic/Web Design.
And having a passion for it and all…I know that Macbooks are the best and recommended computers for this type of artwork.
However, I cannot afford to buy one, and I will need one soon.
Therefore, I would like a Macbook AIR.

hope hope hope
After reading your post, I felt that I just need to take a bet on this, although the chance is very very slim. This contest is much simpler than other websites which requires you to answer a technical question, twitter, like their webpages, or even get 20+ referrals. Simple contest but “chance” have the final say on the result. Anyways, an interesting contest! keep it up!
